This was a very unusual job for RENOVA because it appears to be a house extension, which we don’t normally do. It was in fact a sensitive part-renovation of a listed period house. As such, the works required planning permission which we managed to secure using a third party Conservation Architect.

These works required the renovation of an existing kitchen space in a period house, plus the construction of a glazed living room linked to the kitchen. The design and construction had to be sensitive to the existing house which is a listed building.

The works required the construction of a steel framed sun room with feature glazing by DASK windows. The existing kitchen was renovated and linked to the sun room via a remodelled opening and door. Original features were kept and enhanced where possible.

To finish a deck was added which links the new sun room and kitchen to the nearby gardens.

We like to think of these works as the renovation and rejuvenation of an unloved courtyard plus the renovation of the connecting kitchen. The result is a space that has been opened up and transformed from an old fashioned kitchen into a more modern kitchen/living room.

Note: The RENOVA business model no longer supports the construction of extensions.
